hey guys, I'm new on here.. just had a couple quick questions..
my 01 cougar has been stuck at my brother's house (300 miles away) for a few months. he starts it and runs it for me every few days so the battery doesn't quit on me but the power windows and stereo don't work.. do ya'll think I need new alternator? we replaced the battery very recently so I'm hoping thats not the problem...
if its the alternator, about how much will this cost me at the shop.. I know its a PITA to change because of the tight space and the exhaust manifold being in the way.. thanks!

well you need to get a voltometer thing and when it stated put it on the battery and see how much volts its putting out, with the car started it should be in the 14's, any lower than 13 means your alt is shot
